When you think about Easter, what do you picture? Chances are good that you thought of eggs. Chocolate, hen laid, perhaps even crochet? Did you also think of the Easter bunny? Associations of rabbits and Easter go waaay back. In fact, the connection between bunnies and Easter go further back than Easter to the original Pagan holiday of Ostara, when they were considered symbols of fertility and new life. So, it seems fitting that today I share with you a whole heap of rabbit-related patterns to celebrate the coming of Spring and Easter. Are you ready for this round-up of crochet bunny patterns? WARNING: It’s VERY cute!

Let’s hop to it and start with a classic…

My Bella Bunny Lovey is one of the first patterns I ever shared on my blog. It’s always such a delight when I browse through the #bellacococrochet hashtag on social media and see a Bella. This cute crochet critter is a brilliant gift for new mums and babies, combining a blanket and stuffed toy and providing comfort and cuddles for babies.

If your favourite type of rabbit is chocolate, then don’t worry, there’s the perfect pattern in this round-up of crochet bunny patterns for you too. This pretty Crochet Chocolate Bunny pattern by Sewrella is just as sweet as actual chocolate, but less likely to melt in sticky hands! This is a fun, easy project and uses up scraps of yarn so it’s the perfect stashbuster!

The final toy on this crochet bunny patterns list is this fun little Ragdoll Spring Bunny by Spin A Yarn Crochet. I absolutely adore the Spring tones used in this pattern. This pattern is a great place for beginner crocheters to start toymaking too. Ragdoll-style patterns are often much simpler to master than amigurumi and with less fiddly parts to attach!

Let’s have a chat about bunnies. The most iconic thing about a bunny? It’s got to be those HUGE ears. Whether they’re lopped, straight or somewhere in between, there’s no denying they’re big, bold and beautiful. So, why not celebrate that fact and create Yarn Society’s fun little Bunny Ear Wreath?

Hopping into the penultimate place on this list is my golden oldie Egg Cosy pattern. Easter is such a great excuse to make the cutest things. Let’s be honest, an egg cosy probably isn’t really functional- but who needs function when something is THIS CUTE!

An egg carton sits open on a wicker mat. Inside the carton are two eggs with egg cosies on top of them. The cosies are pink and purple and have bunny ears attached to them.

If you’re looking for the perfect yarn to work with this Spring, why not try a bamboo or cotton blend? Cool in the sunshine, this yarn creates crisp stitches that are lightweight and hold patterns well. My favourite is Paintbox Cotton DK. And, of course, what’s Spring without pastel shades? Here are some of my favourites:
